The goal of H2S Alive is to prepare workers to recognize H2S hazards and protect themselves, as well as perform basic rescue during an H2S incident.
Hydrogen sulphide (H2S) is a highly toxic, colorless, combustible gas. It is heavier than air and has the unmistakable odor of rotten eggs.
This course begins with a comprehensive but simple presentation on H2S gas including it’s properties, exposure limits, health hazards and your initial response strategy.
Your training will also include an introduction to Self Contained Breathing Apparatus (SCBA). During this part of the course, you will learn how to do a pre-use inspection, how to operate the equipment and training in after-use inspection.
You will receive training in gas detection, which will require you to operate a manual gas detector and also gain an understanding of how electronic detectors work. Safety training with gas detection is very important.
